February Update

This is a 'before' shot of our oven space. We had a standard up-right oven. It was crappy, hard to clean and we had to use a chair to keep the oven door shut! So.......

with help from Dad we installed a new cooktop and oven.
We are very happy with the our new look kitchen.

We celebrated Lisa's __'th birthday!
And on the 27th our handsome boy turned 1!! Where has the year gone? We had a small family gathering. Unfortunately Cameron has been sick this past week so he did not have a great birthday and Sarah was very tired after a busy week at school.

Now please don't look too closely at the cake it is a store bought ice cream cake. I cooked three cakes last Friday only one turned out (still working out my new oven)!! My #1 cake looked nothing like the cake from the Women's Weekly Birthday Cake book. I dislike that book!!

We had a great start to the year spending time with family. Sarah and Cameron had so much fun playing with their cousins. (Unfortunately I don't have an snaps of Sarah and Cam with Will and Andrew). The holidays were going well until...... morning when Sarah discovered a wobbly tooth. After screaming for half the morning she finally calmed down and realised it wasn't that bad. However it took till the next day to come out with a little help from me and the promise of a visit from the Tooth Fairy.

On the same day Cameron started crawling! And now he is pulling himself up!!

We had a fantastic Australia Day long weekend at the Bunya Mountains. We camped (christened our new camper trailer) with friends, bush walked, feed the birds and relaxed.
And now here we are at the end of January....Sarah started Prep today. With a few tears and my heart filled with pride I watched my sweet grown-up girl start her school years.
